As many feline owners know, trying to find cat treats your furry companion will enjoy can be tricky. Want something healthy, easy to make, and delicious? Then look no further. These salmon puff cat treats are simple to whip up and act as a great, nutrient-packed snack – one your mog will find hard to resist.
This recipe is very versatile – you can use any fish your cat may enjoy, such as sardines and mackerel (we recommend avoiding tuna when possible). If your friend isn’t a big lover of fish (yes, some cats don’t like fish), you could always try making these with some cooked chicken or another type of cooked meat they favour. We have a brilliant range of cookable recipes that would work perfectly within these treats.

Ingredients you need
1 tin of salmon in spring water (or any fish you would like to use)
Making your fishy cat treats
Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Separate the whites from the yolks of both eggs and discard the yolks (or save these and use for something else).
Whisk the egg whites using a hand or electric whisk until stiff peaks form – if you can hold the bowl upside down without the contents spilling out, this should be done (try over your head if you’re feeling brave). Drain the salmon and blend with 2 tbsp of the whisked egg whites until a smooth puree is formed. Carefully fold in the salmon puree with the remainder of the egg whites, taking care not to knock too much air out of the mixture when combining the two.
Time to bake
Using either a piping bag or a small spoon, place a modest amount of mixture (think treat size) on a baking sheet and keep going until the mixture is used up. Bake the cat treats for 20 minutes or until they are crisp. If they lift easily off the baking sheet and are no longer soft, this should mean they are done. Allow to cool, then pop in an airtight container and use within 1-2 weeks. You can even freeze to use at a later date. Prepare to see one happy cat!
